During the course of this chapter I intend to examine the use of story formats in team talk-in-interaction. øvretveit (1994) has identified the exchange of information, meaning and dialogue as one of the central features of effective team practice. Indeed, within the context of team work and community care, little research has been carried out into the precise dimensions of this requirement. This chapter aims to describe and empirically illustrate a potential line of development for research in this area. However, before outlining the methodological approach deployed in this chapter and presenting an analysis of the transcribed materials gathered from the aforementioned research project a consideration of the topic of narrative and stories within talk-in-interaction will be provided.
